Family Ministry

At Bow Valley we support the family as the significant relationship through which God shapes our lives. One of the roles of the local church is to help families bring Christ into the center of their home. It is our goal to partner with parents and to empower them with tools to teach their children about Christ. Ultimately, our hope is that all our children surrender to His Lordship, as we train them to love others through Him.

 

Family Potlucks

Our Family Ministry regularly hosts a potluck event for families with children 18 years and under. Each event involves dinner and an active game for the entire family.

Baby Visits

Our Family Ministries team visits moms with new babes to welcome the addition to our ‘family.’ It is an opportunity for celebration, encouragement and prayer.

 

Baby Dedications

Bow Valley has enjoyed celebrating new babies in our worship services for many years. The dedication of children is an expression of love for God and is a declaration on the part of the parents to be a godly influence in the life of the child. Parents are welcome to dedicate their little one to the Lord, during our Sunday service. The family is invited to come up at a designated time during the service for a time of introduction, commitment and prayer. Please contact Brad Anderson to make arrangements.

“Children are a gift from the Lord;
they are a reward from him.”

~ Psalm 127:3 NLT
